Goat Carcasses Dumped In Field

By Margaret Lyons in News on Apr 28, 2008 10:51PM

Eew. About a dozen goat carcasses were discovered in field in Will County last week, and so far, no one knows what happened or where the goats came from. Local law enforcement decided the case fell under the purview of the Illinois Department of Agriculture. From WBBM:

[S]ome of the goats had been dismembered, and that some of them had been set on fire. At least one still had a chain around its neck.

All of them had been nearly picked clean by scavengers. Roughly half of them were piled together. The others had been drug and scattered about the field.

Yick. We need a brain chaser. Skip to 5:38 in this Mr. Show video for our favorite goat moment of all time.
